Sittin' Pretty Knittin'

January 21, 2005

Blah. Tonight was Stitch 'N Bitch at DV8. I missed it due to severely icky illness. I was sick last weekend, so sick that I was sitting on the floor in my bathroom crying over the injustice of it all. I wasn't sick enough on Monday to miss work (however unfortunate or not that might be) but I have been sick enough to have it severely limit my fun uptake as I upchuck. (Gross but true, I'm afraid).

I was feeling pretty cranky for a while but then my friend Kevin came over and I taught him how to knit. again. That was cool. Also we listened to a song by Julie Ruin called "You Make Me Want to Crochet." So although I didn't get to go to S-n-B, I did get the vibe. So I guess that's good. I'm so over being sick. Stupid winter. Stupid sniffly nose. Um... Stupid... well, you get the point.

On the plus side, my friend and I are planning our May roadtrip online. Greyhound offers a Discovery Pass which has prices for 7, 14, 21, etc days. So instead of just a trip to, say, Boston, I have 7 days of pure greyhound pleasure to go wherever the heck I want. So far it's looking like Boston for a week-ish in the middle of May right after finals and Atlanta for another weekish, maybe even somewhere in Oregon if I have time before I leave for England.

I've never been anywhere.

I mean, I was born in England so that's gotta get me some cool points, if I feel like working the European angle. But other than a brief one-day drinkfest in Tiajuana, I haven't left the country since my family moved here in 1984.

That's crazy!

I'm born to be a world traveler! When I was barely four years old, my parents picked up and moved to a brand-new country, with obnoxious little me and my 18-month old sister in tow. Surely there's a -little- of that independent traveler spirit left in me?

I should knit myself a special travelin' scarf or something. Anyway... as Bridget Jones would say, "Well, I'm off to bedfordshire!" ( I watch that movie entirely too often)

And thank my new learning Swedish kick for this one:

God natt! Trevlig dag! Lycklig resa. Talar du engelska?

Get well soon! And FYI, the next SnB is Friday Feb. 18, so far as we've been told. Hope you can come next time :)

Thanks ladies! I put SnB on my calendar for next month and hopefully I will be feeling spunky again by then! Speaking of... I'm having a crafty party on February 5th, Saturday, at 7 p.m. If you'll send me your address (or better yet, SHU box number!) I'll send you invites! I made a crafty mix cd. Woo! :c)

Hi Moira! We had a great time in Stockholm over New Year's and most people we encountered spoke English so we didn't need to use our translation guides except when we were grocery shopping and trying to read lables on our own. Here are some more Swedish words for you:
Skål!
Gott nytt år!
sticka
ekorre
regnbåge bläckfisk
Tack!

Thanks, Rosemary! Now I'll just have to pull up babelfish to translate them for me. Yay! Trevlig dag!
